On October 8, Yelp announced that they would begin labeling businesses that have been accused of racism with a warning sticker on their site.
I brought this up on last night’s livestream.Yelp has long been a racket, using their position to demand money in exchange for gaming the review system. If you do not pay for their services, then they will nudge negative reviews to the top of your business page while burying or even hiding positive reviews. They will even post ads to your competitors on your own page. On the other hand, if you purchase their services, they will generously allow positive reviews to appear.
This new endeavor goes further, however. By threatening to label businesses as “racist,” Yelp is giving a heckler’s veto to the most dishonest and vile activists in our society. If you have ever walked through downtown in a major city you see rainbow flags and BLM signs in every shop. Sometimes this is virtue signaling, but often it is an implicit plea to the rioters, looters, and arsonists that have plagued our cities all summer to leave this business alone. Imagine now if a group of leftist activists walk down the street of your city, or even of a small town, demanding that businesses post rainbow flags or BLM signs. If they refuse, then these activists go online or find a friendly news reporter to write a story on how this business owner is an unrepentant racist and homophone. They then send that story to Yelp, who slaps a big scarlet R on that business’ page for every potential customer to see.
This is nothing short of extortion on the part of a disingenuous movement that seeks to divide and destroy our nation. It is another marker on the decline and fall of America. The extreme left, which preaches black superiority, malleable genders, and intolerance toward the Christian heritage of the United States, enjoys the support of 95% of big businesses in this country. Nevertheless, they continue to portray themselves as the brave underdogs fighting a system of established oppression and white supremacy. Critical Theory demands this sort of narrative. Yet what happens when the oppressed become the oppressors?
I canceled my Yelp account last night after I saw the announcement. You should too. The only reason these converged businesses can still preach their anti-American rhetoric is because millions of conservative families still support them. Turn them off. Cancel your Yelp account. Stop shopping at stores that hate you. Stop watching sports leagues that denigrate your values before, during, and after every game. Stop paying for Netflix to distribute pedophilia. As sci-fi author and outspoken Christian Brian Niemeier says, stop giving money to people who hate you.
They do hate us. They want us dead and gone, our children brainwashed, and our very history erased. This is bad enough, but we should stop funding our own cultural destruction.
Addendum: Twitter user yoopermama pointed out that even supporting the police might be enough for Yelp to declare a business “racist”. Imagine a customer coming into a restaurant or store and seeing a blue line flag, hung in support of local police. They could report that to a friendly journalist or directly to Yelp and claim that it made them feel “unsafe”. Remember that the left has redefined racism to mean an original sin that every white person is guilty of. That is the core of Critical Race Theory, and Yelp is going to actively enable racial pogroms against white conservatives.
